We at Pawsh would like to share with you our favourite Valentine’s pet items for 2011, and this is what our own Kevin Mogk decided was best for his special girl, Cinder.

To win over Cinder’s heart on Valentine’s, I appeal to the Labrador in her. Just like men, Labs can be wooed through their stomachs, so I decided to whip up a batch of homemade dog cookies for the both of us to chow down on. I found this easy-breezy plain dog cookie recipe and Cinder was nuts for them!

(Makes 16 biscuits)
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
2 cups whole wheat flour
3 tablespoons wheat germ

Preheat oven to 350. Beat eggs together. Add wheat germ and milk, stirring until smooth. Add whole wheat flour and mixture into the eggs and combine with your hands (please note, paws are not useful for this procedure). Pat dough into a rectangular shape, then cut into 3/4 inch pieces (obviously, in the Valentine’s spirit, a heart shaped cookie cutter is necessary at this point). Place about an inch apart on a baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes, then flip cookies over and bake other side for an additional 25 minutes. Cool biscuits on racks and gobble up with delight! *Drooling may be a kitchen concern when making these scrumptious treats.
